Mod    Speed&Stability 1.0    for v.1.011

Author: MAXHARDMAN.

- improve Native game speed and stability.
- fix or reduce number RGL error’s with vertex buffer memory.
- include improved version my “RGL Error – Missiles Fix”.
- if you don’t need speed , you may increase units number.

Mount&Blade used LODs (Level Of Detail) system for improve game performance but unfortunately not all models have LODs .
I make LODs for all other models in game ( more then 300 ) .

Same gamers ( and I too ) have RGL error’s with vertex buffer memory.
Then on screen to many objects with high polygons, video card don’t enough video memory , reduce number polygons fix this problem .

Mod may not really help if you use other mod with many new items and textures.
For sorry most modders not make LODs for his mods .
But mod anyway increase Speed & Stability.

1.0.3
Make better compatibility with other mods . Must work now with most mods ,
but you need first install Speed&Stability and after another mods.
Remake horses LODs .
Add throwing rock model with LOD.
Fix boots bug.
Remake plate armour LOD.
Fix few minor bugs.


INSTALLATION : run Speed_and_Stability.exe and choose <Mount&Blade v1.11> folder.

UNINSTALLATION : run S&S_Uninstall.exe and choose <Mount&Blade v1.11> folder.

About effectiveness my mod :
I use program 3DAnalyzer to log parameters in game , so I must say PPS ( polygons per second ) drop in 2-3 time ! I test in open field ( quick battle 4 ) with 400 units ( 240 horseman ) In Native PPS was from 6-10 Mln polygons , after I install S&S PPS drop down to 3-5 Mln polygons ! :grin:

When an item is far from you a lower detailed model is used to *ease up on performance*

*I don't really know what the phrase means but what the heck. I bet a GN will correct me if I'm wrong.

LOD = Level of Detail
You create several versions of a mesh:
The one with highest detail is displayed/rendered at very close distance the next version has lower detail (less polygons) and is displayed if it further away from you so the engine doesn´t have to render that much polygons (details which you wouldn´t see anyways).

0-10m LOD1 high detail (e.g. 1000 polygons)
11-30m LOD2 lower detail (e.g. 800 polygons)
31-100m LOD3 even lower detail (e.g. 400 polygons)
...
etc.


Edit: ninja´d...

For same reasons ( I think because sign “&” ) when you before try download Speed&Stability_1.0.exe you have file Speed without “.exe” , so you may rename file to Speed.exe and install mod , or reupload fixen name file SpeedStability_1_0.exe
Sorry about that, I must test it self, just upload file last night in 2 am  :roll:

Yes about 300 , its not so difficult , because most them don’t need make handle .  I think make tutorial for modders for they use my experience .  :wink:

No, I was just summing up what it did, but I plan to try it out and see if the Hardman speaketh the truth  :smile:

EDIT: Tested it out in native and it really does seem to improve performance, both on battlefield and in sieges.

What compatibility issues have you had with other mods?
And should I uninstall version 1.0 before installing 1.0.01?

This is a great mod! 'Grats to MAXHARDMAN!

Only I get a strange error when I try to make a new game/load save in native or any mods.

"RGL ERROR! Get_object failed to load skel_giant"

The only one that works is Revenge of the Beserk.

For me, that is.
